For the first time the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival is taking place in May instead of October. This will mean that it coincides with Scottish Mental Health Awareness Week which commences on the 14th. of May and runs until the 20th.
This year the Arts Festival will focus on young people. It is believed that 50% of adult mental health problems begin in early life so much of the programme explores young people’s mental health issues. Events take place across the country during this month so if yiu can get along to one of the events that is local to you and learn some more about mental illness and some of the great national and local organisations working in this aea of healthcare.
